    FORT SASKATCHEWAN - The man charged with murdering a prostitute and transporting her body across northern Alberta in a hockey bag posed in front of news cameras Thursday as he was led into court.

    Thomas George Svekla grinned, waved and gave a thumbs-up to reporters before his first appearance in Fort Saskatchewan provincial court.

    When he later stood in the prisoner's box to hear the charges, the divorced mechanic scanned the crowd, then, bouncing on his feet, stared up at the ceiling.

    I seen this guy on the local news here last night,he is a wing nut.I sure hope he is the one they have been searching for,it would a long time coming in getting this serial killer in Edmonton put away.


    Shock turned to anger for Rachel Quinney's family as they learned the man charged in the latest slaying of a city prostitute may have been a person of interest in the 2004 murder of their daughter and sister.

    Sun columnist Andrew Hanon says Svekla approached him in late 2004 for help clearing his name in relation to the Quinney murder. Svekla told Hanon he found the body of Quinney when he took a prostitute to the spot to do drugs.

    THE BIGGEST LINK WITH THIS GUY IS THAT HE "FOUND" A DEAD WOMAN (don't like calling them prostitutes as they're so much more than that)... ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO.

    SO COINCIDENCE THAT HE HAS KILLED A "prostitute" WOMAN AND ALSO CAME ACROSS ONE IN A DENSELY WOODED AREA 2 YEARS AGO? AMERICAN FBI PROFILER HAS CALLED THAT A HIGHLY UNLIKELY COINCIDENCE!!!

    Thomas Svekla is a man with a taste for hookers and a history of drug and alcohol abuse, says a co-worker who's not at all surprised Svekla's been accused of murdering a prostitute. "He'll walk up to streetwalkers after work, talk to them, give them cocaine and booze, take them home and have sex with them, boot them out of his place, and do it all over again the next day," said Tom Upshall, who has worked with Svekla since last summer at the High Level Fountain Tire.

    I am relieved that Svekla has been caught, however, there is more than one serial killer yet to be caught.

    Five similar deaths lead police to suspect single killer

    EDMONTON - By mid-2003, 10 Edmonton sex-trade workers had been killed in 14 years

    http://www.canada.com/edmontonjourna...f-04f26baa6b4e

    EDMONTON - By mid-2003, 10 Edmonton sex-trade workers had been killed in 14 years.
    To the public, the similarities were obvious.
    All worked the streets of Edmonton, usually along 118th Avenue. All were found in rural areas to the south or east of the city. All were poor, vulnerable and struggling with drug addictions. Sources have said none were shot or stabbed. There were no obvious injuries.

    Each case was investigated separately, by officers in different detachments and units.
    But a report from the RCMP Behavioral Sciences Branch in Ottawa changed that.
    The special unit looked at the 10 murders and drew out five. According to court documents, the RCMP believe Edna Bernard, Debbie Lake, Monique Pitre, Melissa Munch and Katie Ballantyne were all victims of the same killer.

    creepy ... she kept questioning him b/c she knew he wasn't going the right way

    I think that's her killer - why didn't they release this two years ago?

    Yes, he sounds to me like about mid-50s to possibly 60s .. gruff and not very well educated. I also think his voice is that of a heavy-set redneck.
